Cyrus CD i CD Player

The Cyrus CD i is Cyrus’s ‘integrated’ model in the range, including a built in ‘Digital to Analogue’ converter, converting that digital data into a beautiful analogue signal, using an extremely refined 32bit DAC.

The circuit of the CD i has been designed in 2 discrete sections, allowing the product to be upgradeable through the addition of our separate power supply (the PSX R2). This addition completely isolates the DAC section of the product, improving timing and eliminating any intermodulation which can impact the delicate analogue signals output. Whilst not necessary for outstanding performance, this addition is a valuable upgrade for the serious audiophile.

Cyrus’s CD players are better because they generate far less background noise than most. They call this their SE or Servo-Evolution technology. The principle itself is quite simple. Usually the laser mechanism (servo) which reads the data from a disc makes tiny movements side to side quite quickly to re-read miss-read data – this create ‘servo noise’ and that impacts the ‘noise-floor’ limiting the quality of the sound output.

CD is the format of choice for many audiophiles. When listening to recordings from the likes of Chesky Records or Opus3, it’s hard to argue against that – but CD hardware needs to be given the respect it deserves.

The CD i is one of Cyrus’s proudest achievements as a company.

About Cyrus

Cyrus has a heritage of over three decades of award-winning products. Since the foundation of the company, we have won plaudits the world over for our incredible engineering expertise and the finesse of our the application to turn these technologies into ‘real-world’ products .

Most hi-fi companies can claim a number of award for products. At Cyrus, however, we have a number of self-imposed constraints – most obviously, the small size of our products.

It is [relatively] easy to design great sounding products without any physical or budgetary restrictions. It is another thing entirely to consistently defy the conventional wisdom, to challenge every precept in audio and to continuously push the envelope of audio technology.
